Ben Gibbard personally selected Frightened Rabbit to open on their current tour, and the Scottish indie rockers brought with them a rep for Invisible Children, a charity that aims “to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony’s rebel war and restore LRA-affected communities in central Africa to peace and prosperity.”

As a thank to you to concertgoers who’ve supported this cause, FR frontman Scott Hutchison recorded this riverside acoustic take on his favorite DCFC song, Plans‘ “Different Names for the Same Thing.” “I almost tried to ‘countrify’ the song, as it has such a strong beautiful melody,” he told SPIN. “It’s a very simple song at its core, so I just stuck with that basic structure and let it be plaintive and sad.” Watch below.
